Next Clean-up January
Eight Flags Jeep Club is committed to removing litter on our mile-long stretch of Amelia Island Parkway four times a year in cooperation with Keep Nassau Beautiful. With the population of Nassau County growing & more traffic, that unfortunately means more trash along the roadways. So Eight Flags is doing it's part to keep our community clean & great!
Members- We will be cleaning the portion of the Parkway between the roundabout at 14th & Buccaneer Trail. Meet at approx. the halfway point. We will provide safety vests, litter pickers & garbage bags. Wear sturdy shoes & bring work gloves. Be sure to wear your safety
yellow "Clean-up Crew" t-shirt. If you have not yet received one, we'll have one available for you at the venue.
Breakfast after the clean-up for all Jeep Club Volunteers and be sure to keep an eye out for the hidden marked golf balls somewhere along the clean-up area worth $20 cash each!
Come be a part of the
